My review

rating: 3 of 5 stars
This is a very interesting look into a possible future. Many of the things in this book are things that we are faced with in right now in society. So much so that this book has a ring of possibilities to it. Thought provoking.

As for the story itself, it was just okay. I found the concept interesting but the writing was not great for me. Too many things just happened out of the blue to make it realistic. The turn that the book takes towards psychic ability, while it is an interesting concept, seems out of place. Just another on of those things that happens too convieniently in this book.

I will read the next book just to see how it all works out, since these are quick reads.
